Do you still remember, your debut on the internet? You must have started with Internet Explorer if you are a 90s kid. Yes! it was there when it all started, but now sadly it won’t be there to see how everything ends.
You heard it right! Microsoft has finally decided to retire the Internet Explorer. This veteran browser retirement announcement is made via a company’s blog post. Microsoft’s 365 product team confirmed that it will no longer be supporting Internet Explorer 11 from the 30th of November 2020.
Also by next year in August, none of Microsoft’s 365 apps and services will work with the browsers. Now the websites that were designed for the Internet Explorer will have to manage without it. But It’s really that hard?
However, the retirement of Internet Explorer, rebranded as Edge in later years, has been a long time coming. The blogpost by Microsoft’s 365 team states that;
“This means that after the above dates, customers will have a degraded experience or will be unable to connect to Microsoft 365 apps and services on IE 11.”
“For degraded experiences, new Microsoft 365 features will not be available or certain features may cease to work when accessing the app or service via IE 11.”
Meantime, social media gives farewell to this veteran in its very own way, you can have a look;
I only used internet explorer to download other browsers. Just me?
